General What is your overall opinion of this product? Great, I find the tone and responsiveness of this guitar just plain stellar! Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Quality is excellent, love the Olympic White color, but there are some faint ridges in the finish which I would expect to better for a guitar in this price range, but it plays so well, I don't want to chance replacing it. I DO suggest AMS closely inspect these instruments of this caliber better when they receive them, Fender can do better! I find the guitar very versatile, but not for straight jazz. On blues, rock, and funk, it really sings. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The neck is a little wider than the Mexico Strat I've been using. This is great for playing blues and Hendrix style playing. The controls cannot get any handier on a Strat. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? It took me a few minutes to appreciate the Noiseless pickups. I have Carvin pickups and guts in my other Strat which are a bit hotter, but I have actually come to prefer them (that took whole two days!), finding them very responsive to the volume and tone controls. They are VERY QUIET, even in high gain conditions. This guitar is definitely bright and snappy, which I expected and looked for in the Beck model. A few adjustments to my amp gain and tone controls and I am in music heaven! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I described this in the Quality section. The color is gorgeous. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I got exactly what I was looking for in sound and playability, the little details tended to in this guitar really make a difference. It is difficult to compare Strats to other models, they are just a different animal altogether. But, among Strats, I liked this one much better than the American Deluxe models I tried. It may sound a little weird, but this guitar seems to anticipate what I am playing, like it is one step ahead of me. That makes for some inspired playing. Playability How was the action out of the box? At first I thought the action was a little high, but when I put my D'Addario XL110s on, it felt perfect. The factory strings were just too thin for my taste.
Fender makes Jeff Beck a better strat

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Well made is an understatement. This guitar kills anything from the custom shop and believe me I've had many custom shop strats. General Your general opinion of this product. I love the way it looks as I bought mine in White and with the new appointments I love it. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone is what made me chose this over the Clapton model although I like the Clapton neck better. Nice and bright with a cool shimmer to it. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The paint job is imaculate and with the rosewood neck looks very cool.
